A very useful addition to the plethora of books written about psychological development . . . highly accessible -- Dr Pam Jarvis * Times Literary Supplement *
The best book I've read this year ... It's written in such a beautiful way. Her writing is so warm and vibrant and it really draws you in. She's very nuanced with this - there's no blame or judgement here. It's information about how our early life experience can shape us but also the limitations of that and how other factors are at play as well. It's absolutely fascinating, I can't put it down and I recommend that you all read it as well -- Dr Suzi Gage, Wellcome Engagement Fellow, drugs & mental health researcher and lecturer at Liverpool University, blogger, Say Why To Drugs podcaster * Book Shambles podcast *
Blueprint marshals evidence from an enormous range of studies in an engaging and accessible way. Anyone interested in how our childhood shapes us will find this a fascinating and enjoyable read -- Marcus Munafo, professor of biological psychology, University of Bristol
Excellent. It covered a lot of very important and fascinating information but in a warm and relaxed style for easy reading. I am confident that it would extremely valuable for psychology students with an interest in progressing to clinical practice with children and adolescents -- Dr Richard Corrigall, consultant psychiatrist, Snowsfields Adolescent Unit, Maudsley Hospital
Blueprint is an accessible science book that introduces the reader to the many reasons we end up as we do. These reasons are varied and complex and Lucy Maddox guides the reader through these diverse topics with great clarity. Her style of introducing us to the people that know most about these areas, through to what this might mean for us all in our everyday lives and relationships is excellent ... It is a book that guides both university students and the public through the complexities of who we are and what we become -- Dr Pippa Hembry, clinical psychologist and clinical tutor, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
